About me[edit]

I recently completed my Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Buea and got interested in open source, particularly with Wikimedia. I started with baby steps by joining Wikimedia Commons which was a way for me to know more about Wikimedia and its projects, then Joined the African Wikimedia Developers. I hope to become a great developer and hence contributor, by being part of the chain learning, helping and sharing.

My work[edit]




I'm working on this project which consist of adding a new Linter category:Links-in-Links by adding code to Parsoid to Identify the error, adding a new catogory to the special lintErrors page and a helper page.
